on a guitar "note" - also check out Julain Bream and Andre Segovia. I saw Segovia about 20 years ago at Boston Symphony Hall. He actually had to helped on stage and couldn't even bend down to reach the roses that audience members has placed upon the stage. But when he sat on his stool and started playing..... he flew across the fretboard faster than Satriana, smoother than Garcia, and more polished than Kimock. Was purely jawdropping, i will never forget that.

You guys are fantastic! What a wealth of knowledge.

I'll try them to see which ones fit into the RELAXATION category and which ones are the UPBEAT category.

You know, a lot of you listed Vivaldi's Four Seasons and that's the one classical cd I have and have listened to it over and over.

Keep the suggestions coming.

Corelli is definitely in the relaxation category. I have a nice cd done the The English Concert & Trevor Pinock. The best version i have heard on those concertos. I would be happy to burn and send you a copy if you wish.

Let me know if i can be of help - wont be back online til tonite.

I have a Segovia box set coming in the mail - hopefully tomorrow!!! As with the Jerry acoustic, I can listen to classical guitar, esp. the Spanish stuff - all day long.
I'm an old music major, so I'm not gonna even try to give my
list.
However, let me say that if you love the Dead, I would steer you towards the Romantic period, esp. trippy symphonies like Symphonie Fantastique (Berlioz) and the Debussey stuff, along with chamber music.
Two must haves are -

The Chopin Nocturnes done by Vladmir Horowitz
The Bach Cello Suites done by Pablo Casals

It doesn't get any better than that!!!

I'll second the Bach Cello Suites!! Not overly familiar with the others you listed, i'll have to check those out.
